6:16 am
debate as everybody tries to down play their candidate's performance and anticipated performance and play up the strengths of the opponent. so we are seeing some of that playing out. we are seeing some efforts to work it a little bit the but look, a lot is at stake here. they are talking about potential of 100 million people watching what happens inside this building, on tv tonight and if that is the case it would shatter previous record for a u.s. political debate. you know, this really could change the direction of the election. we always say that with debates but when you look at how close the polls are right and the tightening we have seen in this race both nationally and in the swing steaks there is a lot at stake tonight you mentioned moderator lester holt and donald trump erroneously called him a democrat last couple of days, he is corrected because lester holt has been a registered republican since about 2003.
6:17 am
>> reporter: well, yes -- >> just because what you said about trump attacking the process more than anything. >> reporter: yes, there has always been this discussion about whether lester holt should engage in kind of on the fly back checking whether that is the proper role of the moderate error not but clinton folks really want to build pressure on lester holt to really go after donald trump and engages in any exaggerations or untruths. so, yeah, i mean listen, you you cannot envy the position that lester holt is in on this thing. we saw at the last kind of presidential town hall forum thing that nbc did, the kind of blow back that matt lauer got from clinton supporters. so yeah, if you are lester holt or any debate moderator you have to thread the needle. >> handful have of reporters
6:18 am
from abc and cnn and chris wallace from fox will be moderator for the third and final debate so just a couple weeks before the election. tonight will be interesting. >> ninety minutes. >> only two in america not watching this already lauren johnson and myself because of the the hour, unfortunately. >> it is on kind of ovulate. 9:00 o'clock on the east coast, 90 minutes long, it is a long time. >> forty days from election day, doug luzader, thanks very much. so make sure that you at home if you are watching you you can rate your debate. use our fox 29 app, sign up there and, you know, lots of people watch in real time. >> this is cool our own bruce gordon will be live with coverage from hofstra university in our early evening newscast and watch it all live right here, of course at 9:00 o'clock on fox 29 followed up by a wrap up on fox 29 news with iain and lucy. >> just second ago have you watched tonight we want to necessity how you feel about what is happening, have your phone go to the the fox 29 news app, click on rate

6:20 am
rain comes again, thursday, and friday, maybe even into saturday morning, we do need the rain though, and then we will clear things out in time for the weekend. the that is your weather authority forecast, bob kelly, it has been a adventurous monday. >> a lot going on here a lot of craziness. 6:20. live look at eastbound lanes of the the 30 bypass right here at route 282 for gang in chester county an accident, slow go as your drive on past that, south on i-95 we have an accident here, in the construction zone right at cottman avenue so we will go from three lanes down to two, into the squeeze, as you work your way south. now south on the northeast extension an accident just south of the quakertown, and a problem here on the 42 freeway right at 295 interchange in bellmawr. overturn tractor trailer and kind of the way it is situated it is causing delays on both 42 and 295, and the ramps from
6:21 am
northbound 42, to 295 north are blocked and so your best bet coming in towards philadelphia, be ready for a a delay and if you need to pick up 295, i'd use black horse pike. anyone coming north on 295 from say swedesboro, paulsboro, you will get jammed up, with this overturned tractor trailer, on the ramps your best bet, using the new jersey turnpike, as an alternate. here's a live look at the freeway, again, slower than normal coming in towards philadelphia, because of that accident on the ramps. chris and lauren, back over to you. >> did you hear eagles win yesterday. >> we're three and zero by the way. yesterday, was a big day where we beat a really good team, could there division rivals be the nfc keep up. see how they got some help. katie mcginty: franny, johnny, mikey, maureen, jimmy,

volume delays this morning. we don't have have any sun glare just yet south on the extension a quash at quakertown but problems in new jersey a tractor trailer accident has ramp from route 42 north to the ramp to go 295 north right there in the construction zone and in bellmawr. so for anyone coming from the south and you typically use 295 we're jam upright where all those ramps come together here at 42 and 295. use new jersey turnpike if you are going north or south and then 42 north coming in toward the city will be jammed. use the black horse pike route 168 and that will give you access to 295 as well. chris and lauren, back over to you. let's talk football. eagles face their toughest test have the the year yesterday and boy, did they come up, big. blocking an attempted field goal there, how about that, this eagles defense is amazing. carson wentz led the way, throwing for 301-yard, two
6:47 am
touchdowns, defense dominant, four sacks, two turnovers, fletcher cox is god, coach doug pederson is first eagles coach to win his first three games with the eagles. >> where do we live now. >> we live in wentzsylvania and we want to welcome dave uram to pennsylvania, wip 94.1. you have never been to wentzsylvania before. >> a parentally not because i'm glad to be here because it is a lot of fun. >> you reside in the philadelphia area but you have never been to wentzsylvania. >> no. >> explain this. >> do you see these notes? every day notes, the notes from today. maybe not. this is a plate, and i didn't come prepared because i was than the prepared for this. but this is a plate and pretend this is a nice serving of crow on on it and i'm eating the serving of pray you can eat feathers and tall ons do. >> i didn't expect this. >> i don't think a lot of people did. >> the thing that vices me is
6:48 am
not so much his talent but poised, playing controlled with that talent and how much he is dominating right now. bigger shock to me pregnant, doug pederson, i say pregnant pause because he pause is a lot during his press conferences. pederson is excellent. he is unsung hero. wentz is great but lost in all of the wentzsylvania it is doug pederson. aggressive play caller. he is creative. he is not, unpredictable like chip kelly was. doug pederson to me is no longer pregnant pause pieder he is doug i play call. >> it is what he did in the off season bringing in jim schwartz. >> that helped. >> he was with detroit. >> he wasn't with the a team last year with the detroit and buffalo bills where he was very good. >> they have changed from 3/4 to 4/3 and it changed everything. the defense is unexpectly great. >> that is one thing i'm not sure about. i believe this, i predict six
6:49 am
wins. they are halfway there. i predict six wins and even they they would have six wins they would be in a lot of these games because of the defense. the defense would keep them close but i didn't have high expectations for offense. the defense is playing outstanding. fletcher cox, bennie logan, brandon graham, connor barwin getting pressure. malcolm jenkins was reincarnation of brian dawkins yesterday. >> he played with a vengeance. >> they kept saying, we are seeing future now for us. >> future is now, they are in first place in the nfc east. future cannot be more than here. >> why did all of the experts including yourself have this so wrong? everyone had this team at six and ten at best. >> okay. well reason why i had it so wrong because i didn't believe in doug pederson. i said on 94 wip and right here in this seat if the eagles hire doug pederson. i'm doomed he got ranked as worst coach in the the nfl going in to this season.
6:50 am
>> andy reid 2.0 because that is his mentor. he is nothing like andy reid. he gives good answers during press conferences. he is respectful, likable and he mixes things up which reid never d chip kelly never d doug pederson is outstanding. >> it is like a whole new team but different football this season compared to last year. >> another reason i believe in this team is because how howie roseman has construct the teams in the past, i didn't feel there was enough play makers on offense. i'm skeptical about that. but look at that play. i can, that was carson wentz is only person who could make that play to darren sproles. sam bradford is having a great season and they would probably be three-zero if sam bradford were here. they cannot make that play. >> biggest loss for mike tomlin in his career. >> never lost by 30-point before. >> that was. >> you know what, i say howie
